Jeff - Bug 110308. David, have you opened bugs for declaring APIs?

David - WST done. Will create API plan for JST.

Arthur - Bug 110312.

Arthur - Investigating how to make these pages dynamic by using PHP or an XSLT servlet

Jeff - Bug 111141. Created a page [1] that shows your performance JUnit results. It shows you which testcases are being run, any exceptions being thrown in your testcases and etc.


Jeff - Got some suggestion from David, will work on it more...

Jeff - Bug 111843. Large workspace testcase committed, it will be run in this week's I-build. Will close bug once the results are in.

Jeff - Bug 111844. RDB and most of the XSD/WSDL/WSI plug-ins are now single jarred. Will contact the owners of plug-ins that are not yet single jarred.

[action] Action for Jeff, open bugs for plug-ins that are not single jarred.

David - How many plug-ins are not single jarred?

Jeff - 10 or so

Jeff - Bug 111849. Did component leads receive bugs to update component.xml?

Daivd - Done. Bugs already opened.

Component leads - component.xml are pretty up-to-date, should be good to use for API checking.

Jeff - Translation packs for WTP 0.7.1 are now available for download. The official Eclipse announcement is here[1].


2. WTP 1.0 M9 Status - David Williams

Review bug backlog, builds, and plans.

Daivd - Weekly I-build candidate is out, looks good so far. Please smoke test by noon.

David - Still have 2 blockers.

111253  blo  P3  nagrawal@xxxxxxxxxx  REOP  EJB Validator gives CHKJ2802E error when ejb project dep...  
111886  blo  P3  cbridgha@xxxxxxxxxx  NEW  j2ee webservice plugin startup problems  

Daivd - The Web service plug-in startup problem, doesn't look serious.

Chuck - It's a ClassNotFound exception at startup. This class has been renamed already, so not sure why we are getting that. Tried -clean, doesn't help, could be a configuration problem.

Chuck - For the EJB validator bug, it only happens on Linux headless environment. Although it's blocking this particular scenario, the scenario itself is not main stream.

David - We have 22 critical bugs. There's about 10 of them that do not have a target milestone. Critical bugs should have a target, component leads please take a look. We need to target them by next weekWe only have 3 weeks left till M9.

[action] Component leads to review critical bugs and assign a milestone target.

[action] Action for David to create a link to the committers build page.

3. WTP 1.0 Performance - Jeffrey Liu

Review the Top Ten performance problems and the fix plan for them.

Jeff - Not much to report here other than the action items from above.

Daivd - Please make sure your JUnit testcase can also be run in 0.7. We want to see the imporvements.

Jeff - If your testcase does not work in 0.7, you can send me one that works and I'll run it for you.

4. WTP 1.0 API Scans - Jeffrey Liu

Review the status of the API scans including our Javadoc and JUnit coverage, errors in the API, and violations of the Eclipse Platform API.

Jeff - API reports are now available for the latest 1007 I build.

[action] Action for Jeff. Open bugs for API violation (per component).

5. WTP Features and Subsystems Status [1] - David Williams


David - Updated document from last week. It is questionable how we handle the JST division. Someone suggested more fine grain features.

David - I have feature definition in my local workspace. Plan to roll out the WST side first and then get feedback.

Ted - For the product adapters, are we going to have one feature per vendor or a feature for all?

David - The plan is a feature for all. Not sure if there's any requirements to pick out specific one. This is open to debate, if a requirement comes in, we can discuss it.

Ted - I'm sure products building on top of WTP would all like the ability to pick and choose which server type they want and not want to include.

Konsta - For example, we don't want to see the Generic WebLogic adaptors since we have a custom one that provides much more integration.

David - Let's do this in small steps. First off, let's roll out with one big feature. Then we can revisit this requirement and refine the feature if necessary.

Craig - Wouldn't capability solve this issue?

Jeff - Does capability just filiter UI?

Craig - No, it can filter based on extension points.

6. Flexible Project Development Status - Chuck Bridgham

Chuck - Not much update here... We need to define the set of facets.

Jeff - Chris/Kathy, is Web service still on schedule to complete the port (based on the schedule that Kathy sent out previously)?

Kathy - We are a bit behind. Tim D. may need a couple more days to complete his port.

Chuck - We were going to remove the component type ID and replace it with project facet APIs this week. However, we are now going to delay it to next week.

Ted - We'll be adopting the new project facet wizard when we take on the new APIs.

Chuck - That's a lot of work. You can get onto our framework and use our current wizard to create facet projects.

Chris - So can you have API and framework going by next week I-Build?

Chuck - The target for the facet APIs is next week.

Chris - Should we expect breakages in APIs?

Chuck - There will be some in the component APIs, which we announced. For others, we can work together if any comes up

Chuck - The operations framework will be funcational.

David - Does all projects need to have a facet?

Chuck - All J2EE projects will have at least one base facet, the Java facet.

Chuck - However, we don't have the set of facet defined. Need to work on that.

Ted - I can write a proposal for that, and iterate from it.

[action] Action for Ted. Create a proposal for facets.

David - What about users from version 0.7 that need to move to this facet model in 1.0?

Konsta - Users are not required to use facets if they do not want to.

David - For those who want to exploit facets, any migration plan?

Chuck - Correct, we need to consider migration from 0.7.

Ted - When registering projects to EAR? Are there any plans for an event model? something API-able?

Chuck - Possiblely, we don't have an event model now, but you can listen on the EAR's EMF model. I can show you how to do that.

7. Project Facets Development Status -Konstantin Komissarchik

Konsta - API level development happening.

Jeff - Can they be single jarred?

Konsta - They will, trying to resolve some image loading issues first.

8. Other Business - Open

Ted - Just want to get Tim's status on getting rip of .deployable. Just want to see if people have tried exporting EAR now that it's gone.

Chuck - Pretty sure it is not working.

David - Remember the bug about more flexibility in naming Web content and Java source. Ted u looking at it?

Ted - yea. Trying to get some people to create some UI for that.

Ted - We have some usability suggestions for the properties panel in the J2EE page as well. We might be able to implement the suggestions as well :)

Ted - We will post some suggestions and ask for feedback.

David - What's Dynamic Web project (new)?

Chuck - That's the new facet wizard. Just a temporary thing.

Konsta - We also have new wizards for EAR, utility projects, etc. So you can play around with the new UI.
